Dodge Those Speeding Points And Face Prison

The police are prosecuting a lot of people who wrongly take the blame for jumping red lights and speeding fines. Ask your Aldershot driving instructor for more information. People do this as they falsely think that it is only a moderate offense. Nonetheless it allows unsafe motorists to avoid being banned. Thereby people supporting these speeders may well face going to jail.

In one case one person was imprisoned for around six yrs after he assisted 700 speeding motorists to avoid fines. The person was a part of a group who assist individuals from not paying fines. About 5 gangs have been looked at in the past two years with the police force imprisoning both the driver and the assistant.

That type of criminal offense is rising fast. Police have informed people that they can expect going to jail instead of receiving a £60 penalty and occuring a three penalty points on his or her licence. When a car is caught on camera, possibly jumping red lights or exceeding the speed limit, a letter is posted to the car owner asking them who had been driving the vehicle at the time. The car owner sometimes lies themselves by naming someone else as the person driving the car or the paperwork is transferred onto criminal groups, at a cost, who write down false names and addresses.

These gangs are absolutely aware that the authorities just have 6 months in order to take action thus the criminals delay the process. Additional problem the police have to deal with is a lack of man power to analyze every case.

A taxi driver, who had previously been caught himself for driving too fast, was instructed by another cab driver on some tips on avoiding the penalty points. The cabbie then started repeating this for other motorists and through a 6 yr period he had assisted more than 150 people to avoid penalty points at a cost of about £200 per driver. The taxi driver was ultimately arrested by authorities and sent to jail for about 18 months. The taxi driver says he still receives phone calls asking him to assist with their speeding tickets for which he now refuses to do.

As well as a new database and better cameras people will find these criminal acts more difficult to carry out.So keep in mind, that when you are driving around the streets of Aldershot, that exceeding the speed limit does not only have severe fines it can put at risk people’s lives.
